Poste Yarn, Worsted Striping: Forest Hills
When you want to knit up that sports team striped scarf or that heirloom Christmas stocking without having to buy several skeins of solid yarn and stripe it yourself, THIS is the yarn for you. This hand dyed, worsted weight self striping yarn is dyed in small batches exclusively for Simply Socks Yarn Company. The name pays homage to our restored 1940's post office store and dye studio and we hope to bring a bit of that era to you with each skein- when each postcard or piece of mail held promise and carried importance often looked over in this digital age.
This color stripes as follows: blue, red. If casting on 80 for a stocking, you get 5-6 row stripes. If casting on 40 for a scarf, you get thicker 10-12 row stripes.
